" Molotov hailed the resolution as being of "paramount importance to all peoples [whether large or small," and the American and British leaders at the assembly assented publicly in their endorsement of the same idea. . ~ . ,This was a generic agreement of a principle. When the assembly became more Specific concerning an immediate troop census of soldiers and their disposition throughout the world some disagreement ensued. Secretary Byrnes had already reported this country now has less than 550,000 troops in its overseas forces. He then proceeded to make a rather specific and detailed enumeration of the troops and^their foreign deployment as a manifest of good faith. , It will be interesting to note the response of Russia,-if there is a response, and what tactical and political disposition she has made of her troops. At any. "rate the major nations of the world have agreed in generality to a prin* ciple which will have wide support providing it affects every one concerned and means not that this country disarm, but that others follow suit as well if there is to be any application of the principle.- ECONOMIC REPORT F IRST report of the President's Council, of Economic Advisers will be made public [Wednesday, and will immediately, become the center of considerable interest throughput the nation. ': Council Chairman Edward G. Nourse said the.first report will deal only in general terms with the economic situation and that specific recommendations concerning legislation and government policy will not be disclosed until President Truman sends his economic message to Congress early next month. Membership of the council includes Nourse, former vice-president of Brookings Institute; !Leou H. Keyserling, vice-chair- jnan, .former Columbia University economics professor; John D. Clark, former tiean'of the college of business, University of Nebraska. . , The report will be released while government-experts are collecting information on the most prosperous peacetime year in the nation's history, while the C. I. 0. is launching its nation-wide program for higher •>vages and while some leading management representatives have placed themselves on record that, additional price increases will be necessary to. compensate for any further j^age increases. • » According to some, the record of the- year's economic trend shows that the nation's industrial section completed its con- Version from war to peacetime footing by August and that national income started in ih'e first quarter of the year at Hie annual rate, of,$154,000,000,0(10 and is now estimated at'tke rate of $173,000,000,000, an all- time , liighir ^Retail sales increased from r^Bj^OSjOOOjOOO- in January to a record , $8,770 t OOO;000 in October; employment increased from 51,420,000 to 57,040,000, and tfie price index soared from 143.1 in January to-167 for;0ctober. ^In "viewed/ .the recent contretemps over the ~*" j coal. : mines,,the European unrest, the lagging t peace 1 negotiations and a general ftrend towsmLa Boom-and-bust cycle,,the report of tlie_ President's economic advisers .Will be extremely interesting.

Dean, who declared that the 25-foot' tree now standing in the rotunda at the .Capitol will be decorated with ornaments^paid for out of his department's funds, and since he, is the state director of finance, lie should be able to do something about it. '' " ' In so doing, he has the complete support of Governor Warren, "who declared that the" idea of not having a tree in,, the "Capitol werald be Warren: '"unthinkable." Says Governor,. "I feel that Christmas trees in homes arid public buildings are so much a: part^of life in our holiday season and represent good will toward everyone so universally that it would seem inhospitable, to say the least, not to have a Christmas tree to welcome the public to the State^ Capitol."

That statement carries the inference that there is not a Nazi sympathizer among these 86 topnotch researchers of the Nazi -war machine, -which is a little hard, to believe. But -we might as well* face the realistic fact that there was little to do with these men except execute them, or use them.- They are, in fact, part of the spoils of war—about the only spoils this government has received. As such they are extremely valuable, for two reasons. as pulse jet and >ram jet< engines, radar, and supersonic^ aerodynamics. Until the United.Nations Develops an acceptable and- workable disarmament program,; they will probably continue developing their particular specialties for the army whictfthey so recently opposed. ~ - • What will become of them after disarmament? Some will go to" universities and private industries here, the war department says. Others •may return to *<3ermany. But whatever "their destination, let us hope that their undeniable -gifts will be -used to advance the world's well-being and thus atone partially to the world for the 'continued' suffering which the fruits of their Ingenuity, employed for devilishly inhuman purposes, have caused. In the first place, it is highly desirable to have them out of Germany. They might _all plead that their attitude was a" victory for Nazi fanaticism did not mean that they too were fanatics. But certainly it would have -been unsafe to leave them at large, in "Germany, even an exhausted, impoverished Germany, so long as cells of nazism remain. Secondly, their presence here is w'orth infinitely more than any amount of mojiey or machines that we might secure from Germany. The war department has estimated that their efforts will" save this country from -2 to 10 years and at least $750,000,000 in rocket .research alone. That statement is further, though not particularly startling, proof of how far the" United States lagged behind Germany in the field o* military science, 'except- for the atomic bomb. • At any rate, we have with us today the men who developed the V-2 rocket aiTO the WT3-163 jet fighter, as well as specialists in such things One frequently hears It said that "everybody lias money nowadays." That, of course, "is 'bunk. A good half of our population, with less than an average annual -family income of I3COQ, Is still finding it hard to make ends meet. And their tough time" is beginning 1 to show up in reports ol lower meat consumption, for . example. It isn't that there's no | meat to be had. A lot of customers just can't pas^-the prices. So we thMK it would be nice to hear from the livestock men and others who assured the country that, with unsuccessful, unobserved arid frequently unworkable controls removed, prices would quickly find a reasonable level once the unnatural demand was satisfied. That's what could and should have happened. But instead prices of 'many Items keep going up - even when, as In some higher-priced cuts of meat, supply exceeds demand.'in other items, like soap and shirts and crackers and such, the buying- public is getting nickeled and dimcil and' quartered until all but the really rich are get ting-pinched. So let's have a few explanations. They're due those people whp voted last month not only for an'end of price controls, but for abundance at a decent price. Otherwise the price- hikers may discover that the country can still go just as sour on arrogant 5 ' individualists as it can on bumming! bureacrats.

SO THEY SAY WASHINGTON, Dec. 16—My radio dinned in into me—and at least one newspaper said at the top of its front" page—that Phil Murray had "accepted" the Nathan survey which held that American business can pay another 25 per cent .wage increase without raising prices or reducing its pre-war profit -margin. The CBS-11 p. m. broadcaster that day said no one had disputed Jtr. Nathan's figures. He and others treated the news as something of a supercolossal sensation tossed like a bomb in the 0. I. O. campaign for more wage increases—you know how they go on. The truth of the matter (which no one whom I read or heard pointed out) was that Nathan had been hired by Murray to make the survey. Bob Nathan, who operates a private statistical agency, made no secret of It in his invitation to newsmen to attend the announcement, saying: "We have been retained by C. I. O. to undertake . . ." the survey and have been working on it two months. N.OW anyone above the age of 10 (and some under) knov^ Murray hired Nathan for a job Q& statistical propaganda to boom th-i'C. I. OJ>. increase-wages-again campaign. That Muray "accepted" what he had bought was no more surprising than if a C. I. O. attorney had said C. I. O. was just wonderful, but the way the radio handled it, and some newspapers, would have made me believe, if I had not known the true facts, that an objective third party had just given C. I. O. the go-ahead to get another 25 per -cent wage increase— which is what C. I. O. wanted, j Such propaganda statisticking goes on all the time and is legal, if the public is not misled as to have gone far upwards in inflation since prewar, that the dollar buys perhaps half as much as it did then. IJ industry is held to prewar Collar figures of profits, their profits will be reduced by half or more—reduced by as much as inflation has gone up. Only management then w6uld be denied an inflation which labor itself Ss promoting, and therefore management must be utterly destroyed by the economic eventa which Nathan advocates. Management cannot live on prewar dollars, in an inflated economy. That is the insidious danger of the Nathan figures to the union which apparently does not realize it—and to the public. And as far as the public is concerned, C. I. O. said its wage increase after .a crippling 120-day strike last year at this time would not result in increased prices—but the price of automobiles has been increased tl.n-ee times since then. Actually C. I. O. is trying to get away with the same old hoax on the public about that, whereas the public knows better. Now we get up to the college level of economics which may bs required for understanding — although the kids are right smart these days. The radio did not mention the" pertinent figures which were announced just at that very same time. Nor did any front page headlines herald the actual profit! of the two companies involved, issued then. You might find these back on the financial page, or nol at all, and the public certainly dk not get them by ear on the radio. These figures show the other side of the Nathan story, restricted tc industries pertinent to the C. I. O wage campaign, an accounting pre sented by United States Steel and General'Motors to stockholders.

In the first place he professes to calculate the prospective profits of all industry for the purpose of promoting a wage increase for the C. I. O. in autos and steel —whereas only autos and steel are pertinent. Nathan takes in profits of every business, good and bad, to promote a wage increase in the two basic largest national industries which are admittedly bad. But this is not nearly the worst of his economic offense against common sense. He says the wage increase again this 'year can be accomplished without "reducing prewar profits.-" Certainly the thickest head in high school realizes we of my theory of which is this: The C. I. O. has taken on a very dangerous battle on exceedingly weak economic grounds. It has chosen the wrong course and is apt to suffer the fate of John Lewis in one way or another. The danger is it proposes to force the-country higher into inflation (a game in which the working 1 man must already realize he never catches up). Murray should have avoided this 'and the C. I. O. .should have attempted a campaign against inflation and for a stable economy w.hich is what the wage earner urgently needs, if he is not to plunge the whole economic works down the. sewer while groping ambitiously for results which cannot be realized.
